What is a virtual internship?
The UGo Internship program allows UCalgary students to participate in virtual internship opportunities offered by partner organizations around the world. Instead of physically travelling to your internship destination, as a virtual intern, you will receive remote mentorship from your internship supervisors and fully participate in regular work/activities using online platforms. (As long as UCalgary travel restrictions remain in place, travel is not permitted.)
You will also become a member of UCalgary's Global Online cohort, engaging not only with other UCalgary students participating in UGo programs but also international students from partner universities "attending" UCalgary on their own virtual programs.
How do I apply?
Please check the program page before applying and ensure that you meet all eligibility and application requirements. There are different application expectations for each internship opportunity, so ensure that you are following all application guidelines set out on the program page. You can then fill out the online application for your desired program.
In the "Course List" section of the online application, please indicate that you are applying for a virtual internship. Please also email the Study Abroad advisors so that we know to expect your application!
